This little trip back in time to when the general store was in its heyday in Puddle Dock is courtesy of the Strawbery Banke Museum. If you ever have the chance to visit the store during the museum’s season, be sure to stop in to admire the authenticity of all of the various elements inside. Quite a fun voyage back to what it was like when my grandparents were kids, and when you could walk a few blocks to go buy candy for a penny at the local store. Strawbery Banke can be a quiet element in town – but with the recent news that an open air market could be coming to the grounds at the old Puddle Dock neighborhood and the constant beauty of the old historic homes on the grounds, this place is definitely a treasure to Portsmouth.
And of course a very Happy Birthday to my darling fiancee!
